Of course, Escher in The Palace will again participate in Museum Night The Hague. We have put together a great programme that allows you to be amazed, but also to get actively involved. Discover all the highlights here. Of course, during the evening you will be able to enjoy the beautiful prints of M.C. Escher. Will we see you there?
Saturday 7 October, 20.00 – 01.00 o’clock
Magic graphic art
M.C. Escher creates graphic art. Woodcuts, wood engravings, lithographs and linocuts. But how does that work? Unfortunately, he himself can no longer show us, but artist Mieke Robroeks can! During Museum Night, she will be working live with the graphic techniques used by M.C. Escher. Follow her hands and see the magic happen before your eyes.
Time: 20.00 – 00.00
In his work, master printmaker M.C. Escher plays with perspective, illusions, metamorphoses, reflections and impossible spaces. Corpus Acrobatics drew inspiration from him for a special choreography in which these themes recur. A snake woman takes you through an acrobatic and kaleidoscopic mirror dance, a magical experience in which the human body creates an illusion. During Museum Night you will experience this special performance in the ballroom of Escher in The Palace!
Time: performances at 20.30, 21.00, 21.30, 22.00, 22.30, 23.00, 23.30, and 23.45
Fashion on Escher
What would an M.C. Escher look like as a piece of clothing? As part of the Escher Year 2023, Dutch Fashion Embassy challenged three designers to take inspiration from M.C. Escher for a new fashion collection. During a fashion show at The Fashionweek, the new collections by Studio Hiem, Katie Tubbing and Janne van Wezel will be launched at Hotel Des Indes on October 5th. During Museum Night, six of these looks will be on display amidst the work of M.C. Escher.
Workshop create your own tessellation
M.C. Escher was fascinated, maybe even obsessed, by tessellations. He could puzzle for hours, days and months on the many ways a plane could be filled with repetitive figures. Would you like to try this yourself? During Museum Night, we are organizing a special workshop in which you can make your own tessellation! The workshop is on a walk-in basis, so you may have to wait a little while.
Time: 20.00 – 00.00
Dance? Swing? Groove? Chill? Flex? Jump? Vogue? Pose? Everything is possible with our walking DJ who moves freely through the museum and brings the party atmosphere wherever he goes.
